During the inspection of the cylinder cover from a medium speed diesel engine cylinder, it is noted that cracks have occurred between the two exhaust valve pockets and the fuel injector pocket. What is the most probable cause of this type of failure?

Such failures occur due to excessive thermal stress caused by insufficient cooling of the cylinder cover.
